Social Networking Sites
This website makes use of social networking services (SNS) to aid the dissemination of information regarding the activities at HUB-ICS. These SNSs may receive user information (such as user identifier and visited sites) from this website through cookies, web beacons, and other technologies. The transfer of user information can occur simply by accessing web pages that contain SNS buttons and widgets embedded. In other words, buttons and widgets do not need to be clicked to initiate this transfer. Tracking codes are included in Facebook's Share and Like buttons, Twitter's Tweet button, and embedding codes of YouTube videos and SlideShare files. Information is also available at the Personal Information Protection Commission website ("Notes on the use of SNSs" [Japanese]).
